Expansion of human induced pluripotent stem cells (h-iPSCs) on mouse derived feeder layers or murine cells secretions such as Matrigel hamper their clinical applications. Alternative methods have introduced novel substrates as stem cell niches or/and optimized combinations of humanized soluble factors as fully defined mediums. Accordingly vitronectin as a main part of ECM have been commercialized significantly as a stem cell niche-forming substrate. In this work, we used a functional peptide derived from vitronectin (VTN) and co-immobilized it with FGF-2 (as an indisputable ingredient of defined culture mediums) on chitosan film surface. After chemical and physical characterization of the pristine chitosan surface as well as ones modified by VTN or/and FGF-2, h-iPS cells were cultured on them at the xeno/feeder-free conditions. Our results demonstrated that co-immobilization of these two biomolecules has a synergistic effect on adhesion and clonal growth of h-iPS cells with maintained expression of pluripotency markers in a FGF-2 density-dependent manner. This is the first report of co-immobilization of an ECM derived molecule and a growth factor for stem cell culture.
